A project is advancing in Alagoas to develop the cultivation of oysters in a sustainable manner as part of an agreement signed between the government of the city with the Spanish Agency for International Development (Aecid).

The project includes the exchange of knowledge and technology, and will receive an investment of BRL 140,000 (USD 82,000) for this stage.

The Oyster Farming Association of Barreiras in Cooruipe (Aobarco) expects to see the first fruits of the project with the arrival of 250 tables of PVC for the cultivation of oysters, a car, a speedboat and the construction of a shellfish depuration plant, which when fully equipped, will have the capacity to process around 7,000 oysters per hour.

The Spanish agency has been involved for almost two years in the exchange and transfer of technology in the field of fisheries and aquaculture.

The superintendent of Agricultural Development in Seagri, Edson Maruta, says that with this arrangement, "sustainability in the oyster field has taken an important step in Alagoas.

Under the agreement, Aecid will perform a comprehensive plan of technical visits to identify areas with greater economic potential for fish farming in the region of aixo São Francisco, Agreste and Sertão.

The agreement aims to promote the strengthening of aquaculture in Alagoas and improve the quality of life of the population through employment and generating income.

The plant will have a quality product that will not only benefit Coruripe fishermen, but also other areas near by, says Maruta.

The official said the city has great potential for fisheries and aquaculture, but the development of these activities should be planned effectively.

That is why they made "a comprehensive assessment of the production chain, generating a solid database and a strategic plan," said Maruta.

The Superintendent of Agricultural Development recalled that in 2009, technisions from Seagri and other project partners traveled to Spain where, there they found that "aquaculture is very important and is working in an organized manner."
